  • Legality questions?? in Illinois

    I have a few questions. My husband took a managment job as exempt salary with the understanding it would be 45-50 hrs with comp time as a verbal ( i know don't say it) well it turned into 60-80 hrs. Job would change sometimes he would have the power to run divison then taken away at random, for ex. in the end he didn't and wasn't in on the hiring of an employee, etc. then they told him that he had to be in the machines all the time instead of managing which he took it all. Except when hired and brought up to his manager Home office etc. that he had a disablity (lung and back) which they knew when he was hired. He called in sick 1 day last year and was harrassed. Called in two days this year and harrassed. He has been screamed at on the floor , called gay etc. Finally walked out in disgust they told him he couldn't quit he had a not for abuse but we had three weeks left on contract and three weeks vacation coming. They haven't paid his last check and its been three weeks and now they want 7,000 back for relocation costs saying we left before 2 years. But they didn't count the vacation days, pay him his last pay check , didn't give him a resonable ADA request of 2 sicks days etc. Any help or imput would be greatly appreciated. Sorry so long .He probably would have still been there if they didn't harrass and abuse their power on a daily basis. By the way as you can tell they have a bad rep for keeping or getting people to come to them.

    Just as an FYI, even assuming that the ADA applies here (which has not been established), they are not required to give him the accomodation he requests.

    You can contact the state DOL with regards to any unpaid wages or vacation - you will have to have a local attorney review the relocation agreement to determine if you can be held liable for repayment.
    The above answer, whatever it is, assumes that no legally binding and enforceable contract or CBA says otherwise. If it does, then the terms of the contract or CBA apply.
